SW8 Update: 17/06/17

The Sun was shining and construction was in full swing on the wonderful Saturday at Alton Towers. The site has progressed a lot since our absence from the park due to us galavanting around Europe. The theming structure we reported on a few months ago and coming along nicely. 

The site is starting to come along with several areas of the site starting to come together, mainly near the station area with most of the building taking shape and wooden track structure coming out of the station. 

There was lots of activity on the site with around 20+ people on site and towards the end of the day several identical track pieces were moved from the car park onto the SW8 site. After investigating the track pieces and comparing to other wooden coasters these pieces highly resemble a transfer track.

It is an exciting time at Alton Towers at the moment and I'm sure when we next look at the site there will be much more to report on as process seems to be moving at a rockets pace.
